Muxagat Douro Tinto 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Mux Tinto is sourced from two parcels with schistous soils, one at an altitude of 250 meters in Foz Coa, facing north. The other is at an altitude of 550 meters in Meda facing south. The wine, which is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousao, is crushed by foot in traditional granite lagares. It is fermented in steel tanks with indigenous yeasts, after which the wine is aged in Austrian and French oak barriques for 14 months. Deep red color. The nose shows the freshness of high altitude vineyards. Balsamic and floral notes brought by Touriga Nacional and also red fruit flavours characteristic of Touriga Francesa. On mouth the attack is strong and fresh, with a perfect balance between the acidity and firm tannins resulting in a long and soft finish." - Importer
